Screen burn in, need some advice on what to do.
So my S4 at last got the dreaded AMOLED burn-in; it has a line at the tip where the notification bar is at, and there's burn in where the Green phone icon sits on the home screen. The burn-in isn't real bad and is only noticeable when looking at it closely in certain conditions, but it's bugging the crap out of me. I planned to keep the phone until 2015, but if I'm getting burn in this early, I don't want it to get worse, or have more burns pop up.
I still have a few months until I'm outside the 12 month manufacturer warranty, so I'm wondering if I should take advantage of that and send it back. My thing is that I've never RMA'd an item before, much less something so expensive (I paid out of pocket for the phone off of Amazon). I've read horror stories of people getting sent back phones with even more issues from refurbishing, or not even getting them back at all. I also don't know if I'll still be charged a fee or how long it will take to get my phone back.
So, any suggestions as to what I should do?
